Question about 2000 Harley Davidson FXSTD Softail Duece

My rear tail light does not work when the front light is on and my foot brake does not activate the rear light. The hand brake activates the rear tail light and both signal lights. Both signal lights works. I have an 2003 deuce. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks - Keith

You should have two filaments in the reat taillight lamp, one for tail light and one for brake light. You are not confusing these filaments/functions are you?

What you seem to be saying to me is that you have a lamp that had no tail light filament (burned out) but does have a brake light filament still intact.

Remove the light and check it visually and/or with a contunity tester.

I hope this helps you ...

If I misunderstood your question, please ask me again

Brake light


Hi Anonymous, if your front brake lever and rear brake pedal do not activate your brake light then there is a strong possibility your tail light bulb is bad. If you replace it and no brake light is activated then you have a wiring problem. I'm sorry you can't find the first and very best tool you will ever buy for your VRSCF. Do not despair, for a mere $5.50 you can download another one. Please visit website below:

I have a 2008 Screaming Eagle Ultra classic.Both my front and rear brakes when applied,I get no brake lights.Any suggestions??Thanks


Hi Anonymous, if both the front brake lever and the rear brake pedal do not activate your brake light then you either have a bad bulb, or there is a problem with that docking station behind the tail light, or bad connections and or bad wires either from the ignition switch to the brake light switches or from the brake light switches to the tail lite assembly. So grab your test lite and go to: http://officialharleyparts.com/wiring_diagrams.php for a wiring diagram and strat tracing wires and connections. Good luck

Tail light and foot pedal brake light does not work but hand lever brake light works.


Probably a bulb/ rear brake switch combination. If your front brake switch is working, then half of the bulb is working. No taillight issue, probably a bulb. No rear brake light, probably the rear brake switch. Located on the lower right rear of the frame, behind the exhaust. Check for power on the orange/white wire at switch. If you have that then check for power on the other terminal of the switch while pushing on the pedal. The rear brake switch is hydraulically operated so you must have adequate pressure to activate it.

Rear brake light does not work tail light does need to know were brake light switch is?


Your bike is equipped with two brake light switch, either of which should cause the brake light to come on when activated. The front brake light switch is in the right handlebar switch housing and it has an activation pin that sticks out of the switch housing towards the front brake lever. A tab on the front brake lever operates the switch. When the tab on the lever moves away from the switch housing, the pin comes out of the switch housing and turns on the brake light. The rear brake light switch is a pressure switch located in the metal brake line that comes out of the rear brake master cylinder and goes towards the rear brake. Just follow the metal from the rear master cylinder towards the rear brake and you'll find it.

Good Luck

My 2003 750 shadow spirit tail light/brake light is always on


Ensure the bulb is correctly fitted!!

You must have a foot hand brake switch mal-adjusted / faulty. back them both off (If possible) and it should extinguish.

Does it still work with headlamps off?? If so then one of the switches are faulty / need adjusting.
